Our opinion on Phocea Bali:
Do you dream of peaceful quiet holidays and beautiful dives? Located in the peaceful bay of Pemuteran, in the North-West of Bali, the Phocéa Bali dive center will make you discover the most beautiful dives of the region! The club, brand new and eco-responsible, has been located within the hotel Mimpi Nyata Villas since 2009. It is equipped with a swimming pool surrounded by an adorable garden.
In Pemuteran, the atmosphere is relaxed and quiet, just like at the diving centre. Thomas, the French manager, provides a family friendly diving and a pressure-free diving experience, while applying very strict safety rules. Two dives are planned per day, on several sites in the bay, to go and observe the magnificent mandarin fish or the strange frogfish. A day trip is possible around the very famous Menjangan Island, a real haven for divers. Accessible by 30 minutes of navigation, the island is unavoidable if you want to dive the best spots of Indonesia.
Located 400 meters from the beach, the center has two speedboats that can each carry 10 people. The diving equipment, of the Aqualung brand, can equip up to 25 divers. PADI diving courses are also available, from beginner level (baptism) to Instructor level (on request). Being particularly fond of the macro fauna that abounds in the bay, Thomas recommends night specialty courses.
The centre's teams have a sense of service and will be happy to organize tours to visit the region: hikes around the nearby volcano ljen, visits to temples in the heights of the city or kayaking trips, you won't have time to get bored!
With its friendly atmosphere, the french-speaking diving center Phocéa Bali is particularly suitable for families and travellers looking for peace and serenity and wishing to discover the superb underwater fauna of north-west Bali. Recommended by TribloO !
